         Mrs. Bowman received a nomination by Dave Arnold for the Outstanding Leadership award as part of her service in coordinating the Backpack Food program at Brownstown Elementary School.  The award for Outstanding Leadership will be given to one lucky area teacher on May 14th, at the local Illinois Education Association banquet in Edwardsville.  She would like others to know that they can help with the Backpack program in many different ways. “We are always in need of volunteers to help pack bags on Thursdays immediately following school, we always need donations of money or canned goods, and we are always looking for ideas of other ways we can help the community.” Mrs. Bowman and the BES are providing an outstanding service for the community and we wish her the best of luck on the future of the program.
